Well, it seems like I am in my usual begin-of-the-month-slow-posting-syndrome. That, and classes have started again so I need a little while to adjust to my new living schedule (it has been months since I've been to any classes)
But now, on to the news:
seems like an interesting project. According to the official site the project will somehow blend a drama CD story stocked with high profile voice actors, with songs performed by expressive artists. The description made me assume that it would be one CD, yet the official page shows two different releases that are somehow intertwined.
Aroma na Kareshi
a boyfriend based on the effects of a certain aroma, that is the theme of this new series. Our first boyfriend is called Fujimori Yuichi (CV: Nojima Kenji) and is based on the aroma of lavender. Exactly how the sweet natured, helpful, and good-at-presentations Yuichi is based on the scent of lavender I'm not sure, but I am curious to find out. 2011.10.21 is the day we'll be able to discover exactly what kind of person he is.
seems to be mixing fairytales with school life. Somewhere (in a land far far away) there is a school for princes. Away from the public eye they can lead a fairly normal life, and learn all the things they will need to know as royalty. Firmly believing that "one day your prince will come" you head of to the school to work there (I think, to be honest I have no idea what you are doing there).
Three CDs are planned at the time, one for Cinderella (CV: Sakurai Takahiro) Snow White (CV: Toriumi Kousuke) and Thumbelina (CV: Kaji Yuuki, bonus points for choosing a relatively unknown fairytale). According to the official site, the drama CDs will feature both situations in which you can laugh and have fun with everyone, as well as romantic moments with just the prince in question. The first CD will be released in a few days on 2011.09.15, with the others planned in Oktober and December.
Kannou Mukashi Banashi
a box set of the first season will be released on 2011.11.30, including all six CDs from the first season plus a newly recorded seventh disk. The description on animate says "24 stories + one newly recorde story" and I am guessing that the story in question is that of Bluebeard, which will be included in the upcoming game.
Fan of the series, this is your chance to obtain a complete collection. It will be limited press, so you might want place your pre-orders as soon as you can.
